Cardinal Burke Nails the Problem: Lack of Real Men

“Unfortunately, the radical feminist movement strongly influenced the Church, leading the Church to constantly address women’s issues at the expense of addressing critical issues important to men; the importance of the father, whether in the union of marriage or not; the importance of a father to children; the importance of fatherhood for priests; the critical impact of a manly character; the emphasis on the particular gifts that God gives to men for the good of the whole society,” said Cardinal Burke. “So much of this tradition of heralding the heroic nature of manhood has been lost in the Church today.”


The Church has become so “feminized,” he said, that “men are often reluctant to become active in the Church.” He explained: “The feminized environment and the lack of the Church’s effort to engage men has led many men to simply opt out.” (Source)

I think it’s pretty obvious that the problem here is a “man” problem in the Catholic Church. Enough people and high ranking Church officials are now openly talking about it. We can’t all be wrong.  It’s THE issue we need to address. Fix the man problem in the Catholic Church and fix the world.

It’s time, gentlemen.  It’s time to saddle up and ride….

  1. I confess I do not at all understand the mentality that because women are involved men are going to stay away. It makes no sense. It doesn’t happen in any other Church I know of either! I hardly have an equivalent level of experience or time to those who have drawn these conclusions but from my angle an extraordinary number of Catholic women who I consider faithful marry men who are lukewarm AT BEST about their faith and think they are going to make this amazing transformation after marriage or disaster. There doesn’t seem to be a sense that you should marry someone who has a substantial faith to begin with.

  2. Saint Paul debated Pagans albeit not the so-called “neutral” secular variety in Athens at the Areopagus.Roman Emperor Constantine converted to Christianity from Multicultural Paganism about the year 307,because of Christianity’s benevolent worldview. Before Roman Emperor Constantine became a Christian,Christians were persecuted for sport by decree.The superiority of Christianity to all forms of Paganism was accepted by Western Civilization until the mid-1960’s.Schoolchildren started every school morning with The Lord’s Prayer led by their teachers.Now schoolchildren are perverted by adult school teachers and homosexual activists,as so-called human rights and Harper’s books Blaspheme Mother Mary.Look, the evil morbid consequences of the new so-called “neutral” Secular Pagan Western Democratic State worldview/religion are everywhere.Western men and women are perverted in schools by so-called neutral politically correct ideology.If they object to so-called “neutral” Secular Pagan education and justice the cannot work or eat. This is not Rocket Science.A Pagan society even a so-called “neutral” Secular Variety corrupts morals absolutely,starting with Kindergarteners.How can you blame Democratic men and women politically brainwashed in schools in the tenets of Secular Paganism? In a democracy politics is overwhelmingly important,as the politicians you elect to rule you and your children,are the ones who pass Bills into Law that everyone has to live by. A good Professor wrote,Nation OF Bastards,outlining the problem.

  3. Hi Hailey,

    I don’t think the problem is having women involved in the Church. As the Cardinal says, women are a great blessing for the Church and do wonderful things in response to the Spirit’s prompting. I think what he’s saying is that when the Church activities become feminized, men can’t identify. They don’t feel at home. So they stop going.

    I totally agree with your point about women marrying men who are lukewarm. That’s a disaster waiting to happen. I would never recommend that a faithful Catholic woman marry a lukewarm man, no matter how nice he seems. The husband has to be able to help the wife grow in her faith, which obviously won’t happen if he’s lukewarm. On the contrary, he’ll be a ball and chain dragging down her spirituality and driving her to compromises.

    The mayor of Atlanta fired Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran. At issue, a little paperback book that Cochran self-published that offers his insights on living a Christian life.

    Two pages of 162-page book go into some detail concerning all forms of immorality. It strongly encourages the Christian reader to avoid them.

    This two pages of advice ignited a firestorm of controversy. Even though an investigation revealed that Cochran had treated his many, and diverse employees with respect, he was still kicked out.This is so-called “neutral” Secular Pagan Democratic Justice.

    In his Stoplight Commentary, Stuart Shepard explains why that means it’s time for you to make a decision.
    Secular “neutral” Paganism is destroying Christian Values and families, by imposing Pagan Values. This harms men,women and children most of all.Jesus said let the children come to me,not to be perverted by so-called”neutral” Secular Pagan Values. The Catholic Church ought to become like the one that converted Roman Emperor Constantine from MultiCultural Paganism,than become so-called “neutral” Seculars themselves in our Western Civilization.Today we have too many good Catholic women carrying deadbeat men who call themselves Catholic, or Protesting Catholics. Politically Correct so-called neutral ideology is an obvious lie,even though our Governments use schools to brainwash our society that it is true and just.I hope enough people wake up in our democracies to politically take them back for Christ’s sake.
